    Anyone just watching the weather channel now? Now as in 11:00 AM EST Time? They s howed a shot of a jogger walking in the park, and in that shot, is what appeared to be a Penguin Statue, as tall as a human, with what looked like a Superman Costume on.
    I was wondering the same thing as the weathercasters... WTF is that about? [​IMG]..

    The Tulsa Zoo is opening up an African Penguin Exhibit and to help raise awareness(and money) companies are sponsoring these huge ass penguins and painting them up. I haven't seen the Spiderman one yet though, I might have to go down to Riverparks and see it(as that is the "it" place to jog). Tell you what when I go out today I will take my camera with me and try to get some shots of the thing so others can experience the penguins.

    Weren't a few of the penguins stolen a few weeks ago? I believe at least one was found a few weeks later, beyond repair. [​IMG]
    My sister is a penguin collector. She'd love one. They should offer them up for sale or auction after the exhibit is over with (if they weren't going to already).
    We're in OKC, btw. . .

    Yes I think three were stolen, whoever did it must have had some power toold and those things are bolted into concrete pretty good.

    Yeah, I live by the ballerina one and it's planted pretty well as far as I can tell!
    If someones a penguin fan, come down and take pics of them, and go to the new zoo exhibit.
    I've never seen the Spiderman and I live near Riverside...?

    I'm not sure, but I don't think it's too hard to baffle our local police.

    Again, whoever did this had tons of time on their hands. I don't know if you guys have gotten a close look at one of the birds, but they are bolted into a concrete slab! And the bolts are huge. The there is the size and the weight of the birds. Sure I think some of them are pretty, especially the Stary Night one in front of Stillwater Bank on 15th and Utica, but to steal one takes a lot of balls.

    Look at the Tulsa members come out of the woodwork. Geez we should have a get together sometime.

    Anyway the penguin thing is quite interesting. There is one in Brookside that is quite nice I think. I haven't seen the Superman one just yet.

    I think today I found the lamest one yet, all it had on it was painted tennis shoes.
